Vikings sink Pirates in OT,

Posted: Friday, Dec 28th, 2012

Siuslaw sophomore Keenan McClellan went 8-for-8 from the freethrow line against Marshfield to help secure overtime.

COOS BAY — Thursday afternoon, Siuslaw’s win against Marshfield at the Les Schwab Tires South Coast Holiday Tournament advanced the Vikings into the semi finals and left the Pirates still in search of their first win this season.

But the win didn’t come as easily as the first time the two teams faced each other. This time, a late rally by the Viks forced the game into overtime, where Siuslaw held out for a slim 44-42 win in the final seconds.

A long 3-pointer gave Marshfield the lead late in the fourth quarter, 35-29, but five consecutive points by senior Jake Thompson, along with a pair of freethrows from sophomore Keenan McClellan, put the Viks on top, 36-35. Marshfield rallied with two unanswered buckets with less than two minutes remaining, leaving Siuslaw down, 36-39.
